The Religious Right is waging its war against women on many fronts. This book examines the domestic violence front of the Culture War where religious conservatives are hijacking services for survivors of family violence. The Right's strategy is to confront the issue of family violence without threatening patriarchal family power structure. Hijacked by the Right reveals the Christian underpinnings of the multi-disciplinary Family Justice Center (FJC) model for domestic violence/sexual assault services. Wetendorf argues that the Religious Right is diverting tax dollars from secular community-based providers and feminist agencies in favor of conservative faith-based organizations and private providers. What could possibly go wrong when law enforcement enters into partnership with the other institutional powers: religion, family, government, and corporations? Hijacked by the Right is a resource for those who are affected by the Family Justice Center juggernaut: survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault; advocates working in domestic violence agencies, shelters, and rape crisis centers; mainstream social service providers; churches and faith-based organizations; businesses; and concerned citizens.
